Nokia regains leadership of Finnish handset market
posted by Alan F. / Aug 24, 2013, 6:33 PM
Finnish operators credited the expansion of the Lumia range in the country for Nokia's strength during the period from April through June. By adding more price points to the Lumia line, Nokia can now cover demand for all economic demographics in Finland. This is pointed out by TeliaSonera’s Communications Director Timo Saxén who notes that Nokia Lumia models now cover the entire range of buyers.
At the low end, Nokia has the sizzling hot Nokia Lumia 520, its top selling phone at the moment. At the high-end is the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its 41MP PureView camera.

Actually, that represents "other" on the chart. In other words, that is the share owned by handset other than Nokia, Samsung and Apple. Regards, Alan F.

Does this come as any real news at all? Finnish people has been known throughout history as beeing the most realistic country of them all, you can´t fool the Finnish people in bying cheap samsung when it already exist premium Nokia handsets at the same cost or lower, only people who are alone like to buy samsung as it gives "that unique feeling" to their boring lives

The Galaxy S4 is not cheap, it cost more to manufacturer than any of the Nokia, HTC or iPhones do and the internal build quality is top notch.

You can go with what's popular, and what makes money for Samsung... We'll take our beautiful, well built and designed, quality oriented, innovative, and premium feeling Nokia devices... No device Samsung has ever made has as much innovation, style, quality, and originality as a Nokia Lumia 920... When Apple was in court with Samsung they used a Nokia Lumia 900 to show that it is possible to design a smartphone and not copy the iPhone... What does that say about Nokia vs Samsung❔.... But, I'm sure you don't care about anything I just said because you're probably saying "but Nokia isn't popular"" Yeah, that's the way I used to think back in junior high as well.. Follow the crowd, but don't do what's best for you.. Sounds like the definition

Why do people keep bring in nationality to phone conversation?? No need for it. You just called 34% of smartphone owning "Finnish people" cheap, alone with boring lives.

I never thought hatred will do so many things. Cmon, Samsung may have managed to outdo everyone in terms of marketing budget, but dont you know that they also have the largest expenditures in terms of research and development.. stupid people are still shouting about cheap plastic, but samsung has to be respected by giving everyone the FLEXIBILITY OF A PHONE and a SMARTphone, with those very smart features removable batt microSD, i salute them. Phone is not just about Camera.. Samsung is pushing everything just to have a perfect and real SMARTphone, not just about the beauty of a phone and the internal hardware.. Ps. I dont have any problem with my note2's build quality..

Pls be inform about the different research and development facilities acquisition and expansion of Samsung, the immense Software Promotion campaigns, conferences and activities, the full automation of the manufacturing process, and why would Samsung spend less in mobile division if their earnings here are absolutely significant across their company..
